A Streak-less End

February 27th was the last night for Lotto Texas and Powerball this month, and without a doubt, they ended the month with a roar! Wednesday night belonged to Powerball, what with its repeating Three-Number Combination frenzy and a prize now a staggering $348 million.

The ever-humble Lotto Texas broke it off with the {3-2-1} Pattern after five dates. But this (normally) unassuming lottery made sure Powerball didn’t have all the fun. In the meantime, the grand prize rose to a respectable $8.25 million.

Even though the Pattern streak for the {3-2-1} Pattern was broken, Lotto Texas made amends with a playback! With winning numbers 5, 10, 11, 14, 35, and 42, the {4-1-1} Pattern made its 176th appearance.

Of the 1633 Lotto Texas drawings, the {4-1-1} Pattern has played in 10.8% of them.

Now with 58 appearances, the 4 1 1 Specific Order has played in roughly 33% of the 176 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When all 1633 drawings are taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 3.55% of the time.

Both the {4-1-1} Pattern and the 4 1 1 Specific Order played together in the December 5, 2018 drawing!

Before we move on to the repeating Four-Number Combination analysis, note that the above is not an Australia Play. The 4 1 1 Specific Order is not the only one that can play alongside the {4-1-1} Pattern. What makes an Australia Play unique in Lotto Texas is that there is only one Specific Order for a specific Pattern. That special Pattern and Specific Order are {2-2-2} and 2 2 2, respectively.

Lotto Texas and Powerball look to be heading into March on a forceful note. There may not be any Pattern streaks, but there is a monstrously high jackpot and another jackpot that ain’t too shabby. Will Saturday night be a Combination frenzy night or will something else be in store?
